Expand Access to On-Demand Care in New York’s Hudson Valley
Kingston, NY, August 28, 2023 – Nuvance Health, Northwell Health and GoHealth Urgent Care have teamed up to bring personalized, on-demand care to New York’s Hudson Valley.
Nuvance Health-GoHealth Urgent Care brings together the strengths of Nuvance Health, an award-winning not-for-profit health system, the clinical quality and leadership of Northwell Health and GoHealth, one of the country’s fastest-growing, consumer-centric healthcare companies.
The partnership makes it easy for people to be seen quickly and easily, in-person or virtually, by a highly skilled provider. Nuvance Health-GoHealth centers feature onsite labs and X-rays, as well as seamless referrals to Nuvance Health’s robust network of primary and specialty care providers.
Patients seeking care can walk into any center or use Nuvance Health-GoHealth’s new online “save-a-spot” tool, which allows patients to save time by securing their spot in line, checking in and completing registration before arriving.
“A key to a healthy community is ensuring people can quickly be seen by highly credentialed providers,” said Dr. John M. Murphy, President and CEO of Nuvance Health. “This joint venture allows us to meet our patients where they are, with the level of care they need, at convenient locations or virtually from home. Providing care in this new way builds on our unwavering commitment to redefining what people expect in healthcare.”
The joint venture launched with two existing Nuvance Health Urgent Care locations reopening as Nuvance Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers:
1240 Ulster Ave., Kingston, NY, 12401
1530 Route 9, Wappingers Falls, NY, 12590
Nuvance Health-GoHealth plans to meaningfully expand the network in Hudson Valley and in Fairfield County, Conn., throughout 2023 and beyond.
Nuvance Health-GoHealth centers provide patients ages six months and older with care for non-life-threatening conditions, including flu, fever, earaches, insect bites, sprains, simple fractures, eye injuries and cuts requiring stitches.
“Consumers now expect true on-demand healthcare, similar to how they access all of the other goods and services they need,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth. “They also expect high-quality, personalized and integrated care. We seek to exceed these expectations by partnering with world-class health systems, opening convenient locations and utilizing consumer-focused technology that allows people to be seen quickly on their terms. We are thrilled to partner with Nuvance Health and Northwell Health to provide this innovative care to the Hudson Valley communities.”
Nuvance Health-GoHealth combines the community and clinical expertise of Northwell Health and Nuvance Health. Northwell Health, through its urgent care professional corporation (PC), is responsible for all clinical operations across the Nuvance Health-GoHealth network, including the employment of providers, care delivery and quality. Northwell Health will maintain operations for the Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers in the New York City metropolitan area and surrounding boroughs and counties.
GoHealth’s connected care model serves as the digital and physical front door to the healthcare ecosystem in communities around the country through deeply integrated partnerships with 11 market-leading health systems.
